Eden Nature Park and Resort

Owned by the Ayala's of Davao, Eden Nature Park is a 95% man-made mountain resort. When the owners bought the land in 1971, they immediately saw the potential of the place, with a great view of Davao City and the gulf. They carved out the mountain and planted a thousand pine tree seedlings. Now, after 40 years, almost all of the 80-hectare forest can be accessed by a guided tour (for a fee) provided by Eden.

Day Tour Center

The guided one-hour tour around the forest cost Php100 per person.

I suggest buying tickets in advance especially on weekends and holidays so you can choose the time of your tour.

Eden Nature Park and Resort is divided into certain areas. We only had time for three though -- Fishing Village, the Guided Tour and Sky Rider.

The huts where you can wait for the staff to cook your catch.

Here at the Fishing Village, you can request to have your "catch" cooked at your preference.

The pond has Tilapia, Dory and Catfish

Nice to see a kid patiently waiting to catch a fish

Perfect family bonding

After lunch, we boarded the shuttle that will take us for a tour around the forest.

The nursery where they grow organic vegetables that they serve at the restaurant and sell outside as well.

If you're also looking for adventure, Eden has the perfect treat for you.

The sky rider is a 200-meter long ride at 20 meters in the air. Sounds like fun!

Safety is the number one priority here

Gears on!
